Cuba and Chile Sign Accord in the Film Secto
The document was penned by Cuban Culture Minister Abel Prieto and her Chilean counterpart Paulina Urrutia.

During the signing ceremony the Chilean representatives were symbolically given the Chilean filmic patrimony, preserved by the Cuban Film Institute (ICAIC), a gesture acknowledged by Chile’s Film Archives Ignacio Aliaga.

ICAIC president Omar Gonzalez said the Chilean archives were preserved amidst difficult material shortage undergone by Cuba; he explained that Cuba will not get rid of such materials, but share them with Chile where they belong.

Michelle Bachelet acknowledged the effort that allowed keeping a large part of Chilean history, particularly when the Augusto Pinoche dictatorship was ruling the country. She stressed that such a patrimony will update current and future generations of Chileans about the history of their country.
